September 12, 2014 - 1:20 PM

KAMLOOPS - You can tell it’s fall when community events start to move back indoors, but there are still a couple outdoor events this weekend to help you enjoy the slightly above normal temperatures and sunshine we are expecting.

You can kick off a fresh-air weekend with the Lure a Cure Fishing Derby up at Knouff Lake Resort. The event, which is a fundraiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, CIBC Run for the Cure and B.C. Children’s Hospital, runs from Friday, Sept. 12 through Sunday, Sept. 14.

Saturday kick off the morning with the Get Corked 2014 run at Harper’s Trail Winery and then head to the Children’s Art Festival at Riverside Park from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The free kids event includes a variety of projects including theatre, lantern-making, clayworks, jewelry making, drumming, face painting and Secwepemc legend animal masks. With more than 20 free workshops and performances within the theme of fables and fantasy, this year’s festival is the largest one to date.

Also outdoors this weekend is the weekly Saturday farmers market on St. Paul Street and the 34th Annual Terry Fox Run at Riverside Park on Sunday, which starts at 10 a.m. and ends around noon.

For those looking to head indoors this weekend head down to the Interior Savings Centre on Friday evening to take in a Blazers game, they’re hosting Prince George at 7 p.m., or check out Closer Than Ever, a Western Canada Theatre ‘musical how-to manual for the middle aged’, at Sagebrush Theatre.

The North Shore Community Centre is hosting the annual fundraiser book sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day this weekend. Adult comedian Todd Sullivan is at the Kamloops Convention Centre on Rogers Way Saturday evening for his show A Second Helping of Dinner and Drinks.

Tunnel tours and the corn maze have also reopened at Tranquille Farm Fresh Market and run through the fall while several art exhibits continue to take place at different venues around the city.
